Raveena Tandon slams CBFC for refusing to certify ‘Maatr’, says it is ‘bound by archaic laws’

Raveena Tandon’s comeback film ‘Maatr’ has landed in trouble with the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).  The film, which talks about the sensitive issue of rape, was reportedly refused certification owing to some gruesome scenes that were deemed inappropriate for viewing by the Board.

Well, this decision has understandably not gone down well with the actress.

While talking to an entertainment portal, Raveena asserted that the Censor Board is bound by “archaic laws” and it should consider changing with the times.

“The Censor Board is bound by archaic laws which need to change according to the current times. Maatr is a story that needs to be told. [We’ve had] enough of sugarcoating [of] harsh realities. [If this continues] we will remain indifferent to brutality, and rape will remain a taboo,” said Raveena.

“The makers have now approached the revising committee. “I’m concerned, but hopeful that the Revising Committee will clear the film. This subject needs to be addressed through cinema. The Board will understand it,” the actress added.
